Learn how to lose weight—and keep it off— with tricks from The Biggest Loser. —by Rachel Grumman
Secret #2: Build in variety
Consume three meals and two snacks per day, just as the contestants do. Every meal and snack should include protein (such as egg whites or low-fat turkey), carbohydrates (whole-grain bread is a good source) and a little healthy fat (like that found in avocado). Carbohydrates boost blood sugar initially; adding protein and fat helps sustain those levels for a longer period of time so you have more energy and feel fuller longer.
